Qbox.io is supporting a project by our friends at Comperio Search called the seasonal recipe app. The project uses Elasticsearch to help users combine recipes that can be used with local ingredients.

This is more difficult than it sounds since the user’s location, the time of year, the foods grown in the region, and where to get them all have to be combined. Plus, this is BEFORE you have to combine the ingredients into a recipe that is tasty and fun to make. This is a thorny search problem, but one in which Elasticsearch is capable of conquering.

The project is a demonstration app, and qbox is providing the Elasticsearch infrastructure. As always, we’re happy to provide infrastructure for interesting projects. Just ping me.
